Honestly, it's because on the street I don't get to appreciate the balance of the E90, all I do is bang through all the gears at stupidly fast rates.

The dampers are kind of starting to call it quits, so I'm hoping I can get some good lap times in before I start overhauling the suspension with basic stuff (dampers, springs, bushings, etc).

I am hoping to have more fun updates on this build later in the year. Suspension and brakes need some serious attention...

Car hit 90k miles and was running like a champ until it went into limp mode.

A couple weeks ago, car went into limp mode on my way to the Porsche dealer. Read the codes and it was for the Throttle Actuator Motor Bank 1, along with a pre-cat O2 sensor. Cleared the codes and the car drove great for 2 weeks. Just the other night, it went back into limp mode. I ordered the parts needed for the repair, so I'll document that with some boring photos.

E90 is being neglected! Get to work!

id like to hear your input on the suspension and brakes you end up going with. I took plan to do some sort of BBK when I need rotors/pads (silly how youll easily be halfway there on a new BBK with stock units!) on my car, so I may follow suit!
